At the University of Copenhagen

We are interested in the molecular function and pharmacology of membrane proteins called ligand-gated ion channels, which regulate electrical excitability in e.g. neuronal tissues by allowing ions to cross cell membranes in response to the binding of neurotransmitters. Their dysfunction is associated with numerous diseases, resulting in an increasing demand for new drugs targeting these fascinating molecules.

We are always interested in hearing from highly motivated students and postdocs who may wish to join our team – check out more details here.

We employ a wide range of innovative technologies, such as unnatural amino acids and novel spectroscopic approaches in combination with different electrophysiological methods to study ligand-gated ion channels.
